Hair Loss Treatment

What is hair loss treatment?

Alopecia is a condition in which up to 100 hairs are lost every day.

Hair loss treatment focuses on diagnosing the cause of hair loss or thinning and creating a baldness treatment plan that suits your goals.

Hair loss treatment or air thinning may include:

• Care of the root.

• Use medication to improve hair regrowth.

• Use procedures that will help hair grow, such as hair replacement.

The hair loss treatment or baldness treatment that works best for you may not be the same treatment that works best for someone else. That’s why there are many treatments, including prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medications. Your hair is an important part of your appearance. You can design, color, and cut to express yourself or tell your own story. Hair loss can be emotional for you because it affects your appearance, self-esteem, and confidence.

Some people choose to treat hair loss to treat these conditions. Some may prefer hair treatment for various reasons, such as improving general health by controlling the cause of hair loss. A professional can help you achieve your hair goals.

How common is hair loss treatment?

Hair loss is a common condition, so there are many hair treatments. For this reason, you can see many hair loss treatments on the market in television commercials. Hair loss surgery is less expensive than prescription or over-the-counter hair loss treatments.

Types of Hair Loss

There are many types of hair loss, its treatment is called alopecia. Most hair loss conditions, except male pattern baldness, affect only a small number of people. There are many types of hair loss.

The common point of all hair loss, whether in men or women, is that it is a sign that something is wrong in the body.

Unless there is a hormone deficiency, disease, or other condition, the hair will remain.

• Involutional Alopecia: Hair growth slows with age, resulting in loss of thickness and volume. In this type of hair loss, called unwanted alopecia, hair follicles gradually enter the telogen phase (while resting). Excess hair becomes shorter, smaller, and sometimes brittle.

• Telogen Effluvium: Temporary hair loss may occur weeks or even months after a stressful event such as childbirth, fever, severe illness, stress, or sudden hair loss.

This is due to changes in hair growth that occur when many hairs enter the telogen phase (telogen) at the same time.

• Anagen Effluvium: Hair loss and thinning are usually caused by exposure to chemicals or toxins (such as cancer treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation) during the anagen (growth phase) growth of the hair life cycle.

• Alopecia Areata: If your child or young adult has one or two small, circular areas of hair loss, especially on the scalp, you may have alopecia areata. Hair may appear on the eyebrows, arms, legs, or facial hair. This condition usually occurs suddenly and the hair usually returns to its former state within six months to a year. However, if the hair in one area grows back, the hair in the other area will also fall out. Some people have thin hair but do not have blurred vision. In other cases, it can grow like a head and an exclamation mark. Alopecia Areata is generally considered an autoimmune disease in which the body attacks hair follicles. In generalized alopecia, the entire scalp is bald.

Causes of Hair loss

There are many reasons for hair loss. The most common are:

• Hair loss (genetic inherited from parents).

• Fungal infection of the scalp. • Hairstyles where the hair is gathered tightly (such as braids, extensions, or tight ponytails).

• Hair care products that may be damaged by processing, including perms and bleaching.

• Hormonal changes (such as pregnancy, childbirth, or old age).

• Medical treatment (such as chemotherapy and some medications). • Stressful events (such as surgery or the loss of a loved one).
• Thyroid disease. Treatment If your hair loss is caused by medications, hormonal imbalances, thyroid disease, or diet, your doctor will investigate the cause. Treating the underlying problem is often all you need to help prevent hair loss. Most hair and baldness treatments are designed to help treat male pattern baldness (male and female pattern baldness).

These treatments include:

• Medications: Over-the-counter hair loss medications (such as minoxidil or Rogaine) applied to the scalp are often the first-line treatment for hair thinning. Oral hair loss medications (finasteride or Propecia) are recommended only for men with male pattern baldness. Hair loss can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, hair color, and type.

Hair loss medications can stimulate hair growth and make hair look and feel thicker, but in most cases, hair loss will return if the person is left untreated.

• Hair Transplantation: During hair transplantation, your doctor carefully removes a large amount of hair from where the hair is thickest. The doctor then transplants these strands to the part of your scalp where your hair is thinnest.

• Platelet-rich plasma (PRP): After your blood is drawn, your doctor separates the blood. Then they inject platelet-rich plasma into your head. PRP treatment can help slow hair loss and stimulate new hair growth.

What is hair transplantation surgery?

Hair transplantation surgery is a procedure in which the plastic surgeon or dentist moves the hair towards the center of the head. Surgeons often move hair from the back or sides of the head to the front or top of the head. Hair transplantation surgery is usually performed in the clinic under local anesthesia. Alopecia is the most common cause of hair loss. This depends on genetics.
